Antique Persian Ziegler Sultanabad Rugs
Beautiful Collection Of Persian Antique Ziegler Sultanabad Rugs and Carpets
Ziegler Sultanabad Rugs - These incredible rugs were woven in Sultanabad at the end of the 19th century to appeal to Western tastes. In the late 18oo’s, in Sultanabad, a small town in NW Persia, a Swiss firm, the Ziegler Company, based in Manchester, England set up shop.
The Ziegler rug company began exporting carpets from Persian and importing the rugs to England and America where the demand was high. Their antique rugs are similar to Mahal's but are distinguished by their sparsely drawn, large scale, over-sized designs and use of soft colors. They are lovely rugs that are enormously popular with decorators.
